DWI charges after driver nearly hits deputy

A Niagara County Sheriff's deputy conducting a traffic stop on Lockport-Olcott Road said they were nearly struck Friday night by a car driven by a Beebe Road man who was later charged with DWI and several other charges.

The deputy had just pulled someone over for a traffic infraction about 9:30 p.m. on Lockport-Olcott Road and was getting out of the patrol car when they noticed a car coming right at them. The deputy had to quickly move and lean up against the patrol vehicle to avoid being struck the report said.

The deputy said they watched the vehicle turn onto Wilson-Burt Road, where the deputy said it nearly hit another car in the intersection.

As they were following the vehicle — with emergency lights and sirens activated — the deputy said the vehicle was driving in the middle of the road until turning into a parking lot on West Creek Road.

The deputy approached the driver — Shawn P. Robison, 52, 2720 Beebe Road, Newfane — who appeared intoxicated. Asked if he was aware he had almost struck the deputy, Robison replied, "Yeah, I'm sorry. I drank too much."

After failing two field sobriety tests, the deputy said Robison told them, "I am drunk. I'm not doing anymore."

Robison was charged and refused to take a chemical test.

Robison was charged with DWI, failure to avoid due care to avoid colliding with an emergency vehicle, failure to use care to avoid colliding with an emergency vehicle, reckless driving, second-degree reckless endangerment and several traffic infractions.
